VMware vCenter Log Insight

VMware vCenter Log Insight is a virtual appliance that allows administrators to view, manage and analyze syslog data. 

Log Insight gives administrators the ability to consolidate logs, monitor and troubleshoot vSphere and to perform security auditing and compliance testing. The appliance includes a syslog server, log consolidation tool and log analysis tool that works for any type of device that can send syslog data. Administrators can download the virtual appliance from the Log Insight community or Log Insight product page.

The appliance has an HTML5 Web interface and features dashboards made up of widgets that can customize graphs of log events. Administrators can also create custom dashboards based on saved queries, which can then be exported and shared. The user-friendly interface also features a search function.

VMware developed vCenter Log Insight after acquiring Pattern Insight in August 2012.
